Hi I'm Arthur

I grew up around the world, love playing sports and....I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am half Asian and half American, the youngest of 5 and i guess you can say i was spoiled a little. I was born in Japan and between then and now i have lived in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Turkey, and State side i have lived in Washington, Arizona, Virginia and Utah. I love trying out and experiencing new things. I am a sporty guy and i especially love outdoor sports including hunting. I am a movie buff, and enjoy singing my favorite songs any where. i am down for midnight fast food runs, and star gazing. i enjoy random facts as well to break the awkwardness. I am currently a missionary for the Church and loving every moment of it. I am continually growing a great desire for spiritual knowledge and doing what my Heavenly Father wants me to do. I love hanging out with family and friends and sharing experiences with one another. I hope and pray to progressively become more Christ-like as life continues on.  

Why I am a Mormon

Through much prayer, study, and pondering on past experiences, I am a Mormon because its the true church of Jesus Christ. Because my desires are changing and now i want to do what God wants me to do, and i know that He loves me and wants me to be happy and apart of the restored Church of Jesus Christ, so do I want those things also. To me everything just makes sense, being a missionary and talking with people of other denominations you get to hear a lot of other doctrine, although many are fundamentally correct, they still lack A LOT of truth and knowledge. Things in this gospel just connect and make sense and more importantly to me, it answers a lot of questions. And in all things, pertaining to this gospel, is God's love manifest, which gives me that peace and comfort and that assurance that He does exist and that Christ really died for my sins. And because all that is true, it gives me hope, courage, purpose and love. I know these things are true simply because of a promise that was made to me that if i pursued that course i would get an answer, and because the spirit wrought such great feelings and impressions to my soul, I can not deny it. Lastly, just the fruits that are produced from this church and its teachings, which teachings are the Gospel of Jesus Christ, are great fruits that bring about good in this world and I know that the pure love of Christ is at the center of it all.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by simply doing what God wants me to do. He has lovingly given us commandments that are for our benefit, and I am developing an attitude of exact obedience to those commandments. I participate in any and all church functions that I can attend, and do my best to serve where the Lord needs me to serve. Right now as a missionary I am serving God in this part of His vineyard, and I feel like this is a great manifestation of how I live my Faith.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Throughout history God has always chosen prophets to lead and guide his people. Since God is the same yesterday, today and forever, He will do as He has always done, and that is, show His love by choosing another prophet to lead His children to more happier and peaceful lives. By prophets speaking directly to God, through His holy power and authority, we are able to know His will in these last days, to clear all the confusion that is out there in the world and prepare ourselves for the second coming of the savior. President Thomas S. Monson is the living prophet today, and you can hear the things that the Lord has revealed to him. Show more Show less
